Pinterest Launches New Place Pins to Make Travel Planning Easy

pinterest-placesjpg

Pinterest is a tool for organizing things you love—including travel. Our boards are an amalgam of travel inspiration and bucket-list-worthy destinations from our T+L explorers (writers and editors). Starting today, Travel + Leisure is one of the first to be using Pinterest's new Place Pins.
 
Place Pins make planning a trip a visual activity. Fans can see details such as addresses, phone numbers, and more next to the pin image. You can view the pin in relation to other pins on the map, to help you plot your itinerary.

Get started by checking out our California Dreams, New York's Finest, and Florida boards. From Brooklyn to Miami and San Francisco, we have the destinations, venues, hotels, and restaurants to include in your visit. This is only the beginning though, we'll be adding more Place Pins all the time.

Google Maps gives travelers a birds-eye or street view of a location—but now, one tourist board Down Under is offering a live, hipster's-eye view of its city, as a way to entice travelers to plan a trip.

Tourism Victoria last month launched a “go before you go” promotion as part of its Play Melbourne campaign, inviting Facebook or Twitter users to virtually explore the city using “remote control tourists.” You could tell these virtual travelers where to go and what to do around the city, whether that's trying on a sweater in a boutique or checking out a live band.
